Welcome! "Alien Life" tracks the latest discoveries and thoughts in the various elements of the famous Drake Equation. Here's today's news:

g Abodes - The asteroid 2201 Oljato appears to be exhibiting some strange behavior. Previous observations of Oljato showed unusual magnetic peaks, but new data from Venus Express suggest the asteroid has lost its magnetic mojo. See article.
g Intelligence - Will extraterrestrial civilizations (E.T.) actually persist long enough to make contact? See article.
